Top Ten: Ten Great Unfinished Tales

Or – “Where The Heck Is My Battle Chasers #10?” In recent weeks of the Major Spoilers Podcast TPB reviews, we’ve looked at several stories that never got a proper ending, be it due to schedules, monetary difficulties, or the attention span of a fruitfly.  Some have been sublime, others ridiculous, but in all cases our enjoyment of the stories seemed to be affected by their incomplete status.  It got me to thinking about how many of my favorite stories over the years never got a proper ending, appropriate closure, or even a climactic explosion where the hero skates away in…

Top Ten: Awesome Iron Man Moments!

Or – “Does Whatever An Iron Can!” Anthony Stark, since his inception, has been an interesting character, one whose power comes from his weakness, and whose weaknesses stem from his power…  His costume was designed not to fight crime, but to save his life, and his origins in the Vietnam conflict gave his adventures a realism and grounding that a lot of heroes never achieve.  Even we set aside his tendency to get involved in corporate espionage and probably insider trading, Iron Man has had any number of moments that stick in the mind.  But which ones made the Matthew…

10 Legion Characters You’ve Probably Never Heard Of…

Or – “Eighty Hero Histories Hasn’t Finished The Job Yet???”                             Any super-team quickly accrues baggage as the creative teams change, as the years roll on, as the days go by… GLYCERINE!!  Uh…  wait.  Side-tracked for a second there.  In any case, recent off-the-books discussions between the M.S. crew has led to the realization that even amongst the various Luornus, Lars, Tasmias, and Querls, there are characters that only the most hardcore psycho Legion fan would have even heard of…    Hi, my name is Matthew, and this is the type of thing that kept me out of the really GOOD…

Space Invaders: The Movie (and 10 other video games that shouldn’t be movies)

Space Invaders is indeed another game from our youth that is getting the movie treatment according to the LA Times. Warner Bros. is negotiating to acquire feature rights to the landmark shooter from Taito, the Japanese company that originally manufactured the game. If the rights issues all work out, the project would bring on Hollywood fixtures Mark Gordon, Jason Blum and Guymon Casady as producers. Hey, if H’wood is going to make a movie based on Asteroids, Space Invaders is a slam dunk idea. But what about other ’80s video games?  When are they going to get the movie treatment? …

DC takes Top 10 list for October

DC captured seven of the Top 10 comics sold to the direct market in November.  Leading the way was Geoff Johns’ Blackest Night #5 featuring the rise of Nekron, with the lead in issue of Green Lantern #48 coming in second.  Not to be outdone, Marvel placed a respectable third with Captain America Reborn #4. Unfortunately, DC wasn’t able to capture the market share for the month as Marvel took the top spot with 41.93% or the unit share to DC Comics’ 34.78% share.  DC did close the gab when it came to the dollar share with a separation of…

Ten Superhero Party Drinks

I know a lot of people don’t make a big to do about the 100th episode of a podcast anymore, but we’re proud of the fact we’ve made it this far without killing anyone (that you know of), and tonight’s celebration is just the beginning of good things to come as the year continues to roll on. Superheroes have always been the mainstay of Major Spoilers, and if you are going to have a party, why not have a bevy of superhero themed drinks to get the party started?  As I started looking through the Intardwebz, I figured I would…

Ten robots that could kick the Terminator’s ass all the time, every time…really!

The big Terminator movie hits theaters this weekend, and it prompted the Major Spoilers Crew to sit back and think about our impending doom.  Today, we thought we’d present to you, Dear Reader, the definitive list of robots and androids who could actually bring down the T-800 series.    It’s a scientifically calculated list that can not be challenged, due to the intense nature of the work that went into making this list a reality (we said with tongue firmly in cheek).

Review: Top Ten – Season Two #4 (of 4)

Or – “Where It All Gets Weird… Well, Weirder Anyway.” Neopolis is not the place to go if you’re easily confused, frightened by change, or in any way uncomfortable with the new and different.  For the officers of Neopolis P.D., each day is a new trial, with witches and werewolves, cyborgs and super-people, gawds and telepaths walking the streets…  So far, the officers of Top 10 have had to deal with new rules and regulations and a whole new brand of ugly on the streets as mysterious wizards are giving young kids magic words to turn them super.  The question…

Top Comics and Graphic Novels for 2008

It’s still January, so why not try and cram in as many Top 10 lists as we can?  The latest comes from Diamond Comic Distributors who sent us the top selling comics and graphic novels list for 2008.  Can’t say I’m surprised by the results, as anyone who follows the Top 300 list each month can see those trending titles.

Review: Top 10 – Season Two #3 (of 4)

Or – “Oh, Joe Pi, Where Art Thou?” America’s Best Comics is one of my most-missed of the early 00’s comic companies, as Alan Moore and company delivered month after month, giving us creative takes on superhero tales, drawing as much from pulps and television as from comic history.  Top 10 was, arguably, the most successful of the various offerings, so it’s good to see original creators Xander Cannon and Gene Ha back in the saddle with the characters of Neopolis’ Tenth Precinct…  But, can lightning strike into that same bottle again?

Major Spoilers’ Top Ten Immortals

We’d all love to live past our prime, see the distant future, and see if the world is a better place.  Of course we could end up spending a millenium sitting on our porch yelling at kids to get off our lawn.  Unless science discovers the immortal pill, we’re all going to die eventually, which means we have to live out our longevity fantasies in comics, movies, and television. To help your fantasies along, we’ve gathered together the top ten immortals in one list, from number 10 all the way to numero uno!
